Not her "complete bitchiness" or "hostile stupidity." The other sister-in-law tells us that Vienna pretty much has no hope of comparing to magical Tenley. Neither of Jake's brothers have said a word on camera, which is probably wise, but odd, too. During lunch, Jake's mom is completely silent and is just short of outright glaring at Vienna. She pulls Jake aside to find out what exactly he sees in this bitch. She's worried that if Vienna couldn't get along with the other girls in the house, that she wouldn't be able to get along with her sister-wives or eventually, Jake. She is seeing more red flags than a bull in Spain. Jake is a little defensive about this, partially due to his initial fuck up and Jake is sort of bummed. Jake finally talks to his brothers who think that her "brutal honesty" is an "immature defense mechanism," which makes me think Jake's talking brother is very wise. The other brother still hasn't said anything, which also makes me think he is very wise. I mean, if you HAVE to go on this insipid show, wouldn't you want to keep your mouth shut? Jake thinks he is trying to talk people into liking Vienna. Jake's sisters-in-law have Vienna on the porch and are trying to figure out what the heck Jake sees in her. Vienna doesn't understand what he sees in Tenley, because SHE brings out his sense of humor and teases him and stuff. What does Tenley do? Like talk to him about values or something? The sisters-in-law then return to their favorite subject: Girls. Vienna claims she has girlfriends, just not in the Bachelor house or really at home. Vienna claims Jake is in love with her and not with Tenley and one of the sisters-in-law points out that she could be in for a BIG disappointment. Vienna swears she knows Jake is The One and she could see herself spending the rest of her life with him. As long as that life involved vacations in St. Lucia and a lot of television cameras. Vienna is just so young and so awkward and you almost feel bad for her when she goes in to talk to Jake's mom. His mom isn't pulling her punches or wasting time: she wants to know how Vienna gets along with people. Vienna swears that she was just "being herself" in the house and was "true to herself" and isn't that what all the biggest assholes say? That they are just being "true" and "brutally honest"? Outside Jake asks his brothers and sisters-in-law what they thought about Vienna and they admit that while she initially came across as abrasive, she's not that bad. The brothers remain deaf mutes. Then one of the girls cries because she feels bad for judging Vienna and this truly moves Jake. This whole scene makes me uncomfortable, but mostly because, for the life of me, I cannot imagine wanting to spend five minutes with Vienna, let alone MY LIFE. Jake just hopes his mom sees Vienna's "heart of gold." In her interview, Vienna is winning points by talking about family and not being able to go back to Florida without him. Jake's mom tells Vienna that she changed her mind, which is kind of harsh if you parse it out. She also apologizes to Vienna for judging her, but isn't the entire point of this meeting TO JUDGE? They all then claim that Vienna would be a perfect fit in the family. But, really, is "she's not that bad once you get past your initial impression" such a glowing review?
